CBS Evening News with Katie Couric E-Mail Alert


Good afternoon. This is Jeff Glor filling in for Katie.


We’ll begin the broadcast tonight with more on the Mumbai Massacre. As fighting raged into a third day… so far, more than 150 people have been killed and at least 370 have been wounded in India’s financial capital…and it’s  far from over.   Our Celia Hatton is on the ground in Mumbai with the very latest.


 We're also learning a lot more tonight about the American victims in Mumbai...and also some amazing survivor stories. Seth Doane has that side of the story. And Mark Phillips looks at the reignited tensions this crisis is causing between nuclear powers, India and Pakistan, and what it means for U.S. interests.


Also tonight, it’s Black Friday and the shoppers started out early this morning to get the best bargains. But as Michelle Miller reports, the excitement over the holiday specials proved fatal at one store where a worker was trampled by a stampede of unruly shoppers.


In other news, we’ll look at an outrageous disability scam. Would you believe 97 percent of retired railroad workers in one community file for and actually receive disability benefits? Sharyl Attkisson looks into the suspicious claims as she "Follows the Money." 


Also, tonight, a new class of homeowners is on the brink of foreclosure. Ben Tracy tells us how middle-class Americans with good credit are now finding their homes are worth far less than their mortgages.


And finally, we meet a Good Samaritan in a station wagon.  A generous man who helps people who run into trouble along a stretch of highway…and it does it, just because he thinks it’s the right thing to do. That’s our Assignment America. I hope you’ll join us.

Have a wonderful evening and a terrific weekend.

Jeff Glor
